I love family vacations…

We went to the Russian River Valley for the holiday weekend.  It was absolutely perfect.  We always enjoy vacationing with Denise and Rob.  Our girls have so much fun together and we all enjoy doing the same things.  Whether it is running on trails, fishing, eating good food, wine tasting or just hanging out with the kids.

We didn’t do to much wine tasting or actually any (well other than the drinking) Denise is expecting so, the wine consumption was a little lower this trip.  We ran on a trail from Shell beach to Goat Rock which was so muddy, I have never ran in the mud before.  I was so worried about falling down that I ran hunchback and my lower back killed me later that day.  We then hung out at the beach all afternoon.  It was so beautiful.  That's were all of these pictures are taken.  The waves were crazy.  This was the same weekend that the Waves took down spectators in Half Moon Bay.  We went to Doran Beach in Bodega Bay and it was so calm and beautiful. Kelsey even body surfed.DSC00395 DSC00570  

This was the first day at the beach.  The sun was hiding behind the clouds but it was pretty warm.

On Sunday the weather was amazing.  Hard to believe it was in the middle of February.

We made an amazing dinner for Valentines; Rob made his (famous to us) Clam Chowder, Stephen grilled up filets and Denise and I made a yummy Salmon Pasta.  Along with a bottle of special select and Caymus. YUM  it was an amazing dinner.


Here is an amazing red wood.  They are so huge.  The girls loved looking up at them.
